ST. JOHN'S, Newfoundland -- When the lights dimmed at Memorial Stadium yesterday afternoon, so did the Skipjacks' chances of beating the St. John's Maple Leafs.That's the feeling of Baltimore coach Barry Trotz, whose team eventually dropped its sixth straight American Hockey League game, 6-4 to the Leafs.With the score tied at 4 at the 12:50 mark of the third period, a problem at a hydroelectric generating station led to a chain of events that resulted in a number of lights at the stadium being knocked out.After a five-minute delay, it was decided to resume the game, even though all the lights had not been restored.

The Skipjacks split a pair of games at the Arena with the New Haven Nighthawks. Left wing Brent Hughes was the team's offensive leader, scoring three times in Friday's 8-3 victory and getting both goals in a 3-2 loss Saturday afternoon. Reggie Savage (two goals, four assists), Todd Hlushko (one goal, four assists) and Simon Wheeldon (one goal, two assists) were also busy in the offensive end. Jim Hrivnak made 26 saves in the first game and Byron Dafoe had 29 saves Saturday. The Jacks' power-play unit, which has been quite effective this season, was a lethargic 1-for-14 in the games against New Haven (5-14)

HERSHEY, Pa. -- For the Skipjacks, some things change, while others remain the same. Baltimore changed its coach and several players in the past week, but the changes have failed to end their winless streak.Last night, before 5,215 at the Hersheypark Arena, Len Barrie's second goal of the game broke a 4-4 tie and gave Hershey a 5-4 AHL Southern Division victory.Barrie, standing five feet out in the slot, slammed a cross-ice pass from Tim Tookey past goalie Byron Dafoe and the Skipjacks had another loss.

The Skipjacks, who will have two new faces on the ice tonight, may add another player today. The Washington Capitals are expected to sign defenseman Brad Schlegel, who played for the Canadian Winter Olympic silver-medal team in Albertville, France.Schlegel, 23, was the eighth draft choice of the Capitals in 1988. A 5-foot-10, 180-pound defenseman from Kitchener, Ontario, he played for Team Canada the past four years. He had two goals and three assists in the Olympics.If Schlegel signs, the Capitals may assign him to the Skipjacks, who have picked up center John Byce and defenseman Dennis Smith by way of a trade.
